Following Christ

Do you want your life to count for Christ? Would you like to make a real impact for God’s kingdom in this world? You can—and you don’t have to be a great leader for it to happen. Just a good follower. In Following Christ, Stowell shows why Christ’s command to “Follow me” isn’t merely the starting point of Christianity. It’s the very heartbeat of vibrant, effective faith. You’ll discover – What a “non-negotiated follower” looks like – Why God does his best work through followers – Why self-directed living is a recipe for emptiness – What makes Christ so worth following – What it means to pick up your cross – Why a close walk with Jesus is the key to effective living.

Book required: The Life You’ve Always Wanted, John Ortberg.

The Life You’ve Always Wanted

Explore the spiritual disciplines God uses to train and work out His team.  The heart of Christianity is transformation—a relationship with God that impacts not just our “spiritual lives,” but every aspect of living. John Ortberg calls you back to the dynamic heartbeat of Christianity—God’s power to bring change and growth—and reveals both the how and why of transformation.

With a new chapter on prayer and added discussion questions, this expanded edition of The Life You’ve Always Wanted offers modern perspectives on the ancient path of the spiritual disciplines. But this is more than just a book about things to do to be a good Christian. It’s a road map toward true transformation that starts not with the individual but with the object of the journey—Jesus Christ.

High Intensity with homework of 1 to 1/2 hours each week divided into short daily segments including: Bible Memorization, Bible Study, Supplemental Reading, Video/Audio Messages, and Personal Reflection.

Total Cost of the books are about $25
